I have just returned from the Willett Hotel where I stayed last night. I paid £134 room only. It has to be the tiniest double room I have ever seen. You have to open the door and squeeze into the next room to open the bedroom door and then there is a tiny shoe box of a bathroom where there... More

This was our first visit to the Willett and we were very pleased. We have visited Chelsea every year for 40 years, but our old hotel went out of business. We booked well in advance at the Willett and requested a room on the ground or first floor, which we got. Our room was lovely and comfortable. The staff were... More

I “discovered” the Willett about 3 years ago and have since been staying there whenever visiting London. Although one normally has to climb a steep staircase to get to your relatively small room, the guest house atmosphere and good breakfasts have always appealed to me. The hotel’s proximity to the Sloane Square underground station is an added benefit. My last... More

A very good find in central London. Just off Sloane Square in the posh bit of the city, five minutes walk from the tube station. The hotel is a classic London town house - at first I couldn't find it, it's in a tasteful terrace of large residences with marble steps and pillars. Not a lot goes on here, the... More

We stayed here for the mid term break,and the children loved it.We immediately felt relaxed with our cheery welcome from"Vivi", even though for some strange reason we appeared to be booked into The Gallery Hotel unbeknownst to us,this did not pose a problem. Lovely Triple room,no noise in Hotel,we were truly sorry to leave,after a bad experience in another Sloane... More

We stayed at this hotel for the two days in the last week of 2004. It had been recommended by a friend and we expected a delightful hotel. Instead we got a microscopic room that we could barely move around in. If you think I'm exaggerating, note that we could only open the bathroom door halfway before it was stopped... More

We stayed at the Willett in 2002. Loved it so much we recommened it to our friends this year and they loved it too. It is so convenient to the Sloan Sq. Tube stop. Shopping is right around the corner. There is a Safeway within walking distance for your grocery shopping. Plenty of restaurants on Kings Road. McDonald's became a... More

Some rooms are smaller, but nicely furnished. No elevator, just stairs. Great location to stores and restaurants. Have stayed here for three visits to London.

The hotel has a good location - however the rooms are not up to a 4 star standard. 3 star yes. The hotel has no lift and my elderly parents were put on the 4th floor. The hotel could have relocated my parents but were charging £40 p/night to do so. The staff genuinely did not care at all. The... More

Staying in Chelsea

Neighborhood Profile
Wealth courses through The King's Road, Chelsea's upmarket artery of West London life packed with shops, eateries and glitzy nightspots. For people-watching at its best and luxury retail therapy that's largely unrivalled, this area cannot be missed. But if this showy street starts to overwhelm or a moment of price tag shock sends you reeling, a quick detour down pretty much any of many King's Road veins will reveal a quieter side of Chelsea. Here the stately Royal Hospital hosts its world-famous flower show, and the Thames rolls along at a lazy pace, with leafy Battersea Park and its Peace Pagoda beckoning from across the river.
